Environmental Program Evaluation

Topical Interest Group


The EPE TIG has over 300 members who specialize in  environmental arenas  including education, energy, international and global environmental issues.  We share a personal and professional passion for the environment, and for promoting a stronger community of practice in environmental evaluation. The members of the TIG are an inspiring, resourceful, and dynamic community of evaluators – many of whom are leaders in their field. New practitioners learn from the experience of long time evaluators, and more established practitioners learn from the diverse perspectives of an ever-growing member base. Areas of interest include (but are not limited to):
